Ingredients

  • 1-2 grams kratom (powder)
  • 3 cups water (filtered)
  • 1/2 lemon

Instructions

  • Add 3 cups of water to a teapot and put it for heating.
  • Squeeze half a lemon juice into 3 cups of water. Lemon protects the alkaloids of the kratom tea that's released during the heating process, apart from giving it a citrusy flavor.
  • Heat the water to a simmer, then add 1-2 grams of kratom powder. The amount of kratom you add will have a significant difference in the potency and impact of this tea. It is recommended to start with a small amount (e.g., 1-2 grams) of the powder. You can carefully increase the dose from there if desired.
  • Stir occasionally, while allowing the mixture to continue simmering for about 15 minutes. Ensure that you do not end up boiling it.
  • Thereafter, turn the gas off and let it brew for 2 minutes.
  • Slowly strain the tea through a cheesecloth or a fine strainer into a pot.
  • Serve at room temperature. Should you wish to have it cold, add a few ice cubes to it and enjoy your drink!

Notes

Kratom strains are naturally bitter. Brewing the tea for more than two minutes will further result in a bitter flavor. Make sure to choose your strain and brew time as per your taste.
If you find the tea to be too strong, you may choose to add sugar, stevia, or honey for a sweet taste or dilute it with some more water.
Do not use kratom extracts as its constituents are easily broken down and lost in hot water. Additionally, it is heavy on the pocket!
